Merger - Company Name change. Is H1B amendment necessary

Recommended Posts


i have H1B with valid visa stamped in India recently from Company A which was acquired by Company X. 
As part of merger Company A works independently on its own but here-forth thee name of company is changed to Company B.

Following are the few queries i have :
1. Do i need H1B amendment because there is a change in Company name , when working for same role?
2. Do i need to get visa stamped again if there is an H1B amendment ?
3. due to travel restrictions am in India now, Is there a risk in applying H1B amendment when outside USA?
4. I have an approved I140 , should i redo the PERM again or is there an amendment option for change in company name?

You just need to update employer legal/attorney, they know what needs to be done, and will (should) take care without your intervention.

my attorney is confused on - if i should go for visa again after amendment ?? ( I am in India right now with valid via , waiting for travel restriction to be removed)
